Set in old Detroit, a crime-ridden ghetto of the not too distant future, a cop killed in the line of duty is robotized then dispatched to fight crime. But Robocop is haunted by memories and dreams of who and what he used to be. As he rediscovers his past, he uncovers a murder conspiracy at the highest level of police management.
Unknown to Robocop, the evil corporate empire which created him wants to take the city ‘private,’ and develop Robocop 2, a newer, bigger, and more powerful version to replace the original. The first sequel pits Robocop against a gang of drug dealers and the title creature — a supposedly improved version of himself that has gone berserk.
